Young Amelie is very impressed! She announces this right up front, in case there was any doubt, but to discover by what exactly she is impressed, one must read on.
Amelie spends her days in the village farm with her yiayia - Greek for 'grandma' - and with all of the plants and birds and animals therein.
She is a bit trepidatious at first, but yiayia is there to comfort her and to show her the wonders of life in this small, Greek village.
The flowers, the hedgehogs, the birds feeding their young, they all contain wonder.
Finally, after a long and full day of gardening and eating delicious foods - like pink crusted biscuit cake - Amelie takes some of the treasures she has collected and forms a keepsake box so that she can keep the wonderful - and impressive! - memories.
